The Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) USA chapter has broken grounds for the construction of a multi-purpose sanitary facility in Liberia ahead of the 2023 Representatives and Presidential elections.
The facility which is an extension of the of the party’s headquarters in Congo Town, will be comprised of several bathrooms, latrines and shower while other facilities will include running water and electricity, among others.
During the ground breaking ceremony over the weekend, the CDC-USA prominent Representative to Liberia, Kla Wilson, put the cost of the project at a little over US$50,000, pointing out that construction work is expected to last for the period of six months.
According to him, the milestone project will be used by partisans and sympathizers that will converge at the party’s headquarters during campaign period in 2023; which he said is part of President George Weah’s transformational Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD).
He added that the construction of the facility is being exclusively done under the astute leadership of Constance Gbeliya-Swen Duopu including other officials and members of CDC in the diaspora.
Earlier, Paynesville City Mayor, Palm Bucher Taylor lauded the team for the initiative which she described as timely and a very important venture for the party and its partisans.
She then called on would-be users of the facility to ensure the cleanness and maintenance of the area, adding, “Because the better we clean it, the better we all will enjoy it and save ourselves from sickness.”
In remark also, Superintendent of the Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS), Isaac Saye-Lakpoh, assured struggling parents of his administration’s plans of ensuring scholarship opportunities for pupils to acquire quality education.
“So, I will work along with the party’s chairman to see how best we can do the recruitment process accordingly to ensure transparency and accountability in the process,” he said.
